Sports and athletics have been a huge part of Geoff’s life since an early age. From soccer to football, white water katarafting to running, sports and competition have always been a part of his life. Most of his highlights came while playing competitive racquetball, where at the age of 15 he was invited to the OlympicTraining Center inColorado Springs to participate in an elite level camp run by the National Team coaches. Geoff moved back to Helena from Spokane where he spent the better part of a decade working with adolescents and their families as a counselor. Shortly after returning home to Helena Geoff experienced a devastating knee injury while playing on dirtbikes. He ventured into the world of CrossFit to help regain strength. His passion for CrossFit has only grown. As a former competitor, CrossFit continued to fuel the competitive passion within as well as the desire to help others. Along with improving his skills as a coach/trainer Geoff is actively pursuing his Crossfit Level 2 trainer certificate and Certified Crossfit Trainer credential. He not only hopes to be a great trainer, but also a great CrossFit competitor along side his fellow trainers and friends.
Krista’s goal as a coach is to facilitate the community feel of CrossFit while helping members get stronger and healthier. She grew up playing competitive sports and continues to help with her boys’ teams. Krista is an avid runner and is a bit crazy about obstacle course races. Krista was drawn to CrossFit by the people and loves that it allows room for her competitive nature to shine. When Krista isn’t at the gym she is trail running, doing 4-H with her boys, hunting, fishing, boating, hiking, or camping. Krista is dedicated to helping each of you be better at whatever your chosen activity may be.
Jay grew up loving sports and the outdoors. He played basketball in high school and continues playing today in city leagues and at a local church. He also coaches boys and girls junior high basketball. Jay likes to go “peak bagging” (climbing the highest point in a mountain range) and hiking. Jay also enjoys running and has done two marathons and runs a half marathon with his wife every year. Jay started CrossFit over two years ago and has been amazed at the improvements in strength and abilities it has given him in the short amount of time he has done it. Jay wants to help everyone become a better, healthier version of themselves.
Juli grew up in Montana loving sports and the outdoors. Juli rode horses and played basketball, tennis and volleyball throughout her childhood. Juli received a scholarship to play volleyball for Montana Tech, then moved to Helena to start her career and family. When she isn’t running kids around to dance, basketball, volleyball, and taekwondo, she continues her love of sports and the outdoors by hiking and running. She has done Sprint and Olympic distance triathlons, has run two marathons, and does a half marathon with her husband every year. Juli has been doing CrossFit for almost 3 years. It has helped her in her ability to do all the things she loves better, and she wants to help you achieve your goals with the help of CrossFit.
Preston has been very competitive for as long as he can remember; from racing his mom to the car at the grocery store to competing as a high school Mathlete. He enjoys the outdoors; hunting, snowboarding, mountain biking and anything fitness other than running. He played football for Carroll and graduated with a degree in Nursing. He is very passionate in helping others achieve optimal health, fitness and wellness so that they can stay clear of him at the hospital.
